April Virtual Book Club for Kids- David Shannon

In April 2013 we will be spotlighting books by David Shannon as part of our Virtual Book Club for Kids

Virtual Book Club for Kids is a fun way for us to share about new authors and books each month!

Have you read any books by David Shannon? If so, which one is your favorite?

If you want to read more about David, you can head here. Not only is he an author, he's also an illustrator. He won a Caldecott Award for No, David and has won loads of other awards for his simple and fun books.

Will you be participating in Virtual Book Club for Kids this month?

All you have to do is...
  1. Pick a David Shannon book to read with your child or class (several are shown above in my collage)
  2. Comment below and let me know that you are participating!!
  3. Do any activity, craft, cooking project, or other book inspired activity that goes along with the book your chose.
  4. Share what you did with us starting Monday, April 15th! We will have a linky up for three weeks where you can share any blog posts (if you are a blogger) or you can post what you did at the end of the linky post in the comments or on our Facebook wall
We always love seeing the variety of ways that children, moms, teachers, and other caregivers and professionals explore and create using books as their inspiration!

Here are a few of the new-to-us David Shannon books that we are looking forward to reading this month:
